19th Annual Jewish Law Day
Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Sang Joo Kim was an invited guest of Tau Epsilon Rho Law Society, The Board of Rabbis* of Greater Philadelphia and the Committee of Judges and Lawyers at The 19th Annual Jewish Law Day celebration today.

Jerome J Shestack**, Esquire, was the guest speaker and addressed on "Judaism and Human Rights". Jerome is ICAS Distinguished Fellow.

Over the past 4,000 years, the Jewish People have compiled a code of laws, ethics and morals that has served as the cornerstone of modern legal theory and practice throughout the world. From individual human rights to community responsibility, Jewish law and the scholars who have interpreted it have inspired progressive developments in both Jewish and non-Jewish spheres. In the United States, such fundamental documents as the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence draw upon the principles that Jews have handed down from generation to generation.

Jewish Law Day was created in 1982 by an ad hoc committee of lawyers and judges together with the Board of Rabbis of Greater Philadelphia in order to establish an annual celebration commemorating the monumental contribution of Jewish Law to the development of American jurisprudence.

Thank you.

Sang Joo Kim / signed
